Southampton vs Everton – Sunday 26th November 2017 – 13:30 - Sky Sports PL

Southampton are 4/5 with Manolo Gabbiadini at 4/1 to score first.

Southampton face Everton at St.Mary's on Sunday afternoon, in another round of games in the Premier League.

The Saints come into this match in poor form, losing their last match against Liverpool 3-0.

Mohamed Salah (31, 41) continued his outstanding form in front of goal with Liverpool's first and second goals.

Phillippe Coutinho made it 3-0 to Liverpool with twenty minutes left to go (68), with the Brazillian pouncing on a rebound.

It was another poor result and performance from Mauricio Pellegrino's side, he is now under immense pressure.




New Manager 

It has been another season of change for Southampton on the managerial front, with Mauricio Pellegrino now in the hot seat.

It's been a tough start for the new Saints manager, their record in the last six is poor, winning just one match.

They find themselves in 14th place in the table, a poor position for the Saints to be in.

In Everton, they face a side who have an appalling season, their defence brutally exposed again in midweek.


Saints Favourites

Southampton come into this match as the favourites, with home advantage informing the odds.

Mauricio Pellegrino's men will be looking to win this fixture, giving them a much-needed home win this season.

The Saints will be looking to make it 2 wins in 3 matches against Everton.

Fighting Draw

Everton come into this match on the back of a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace, a battling point for the Toffees.

James McArthur gave the hosts an early lead (1) their fastest goal in Premier League history leaving the Toffees stunned.

Leighton Baines scored Everton's last goal from the penalty spot, so it was a case of deja vu when he yet again stepped up to the spot to save Everton (6).

Wilfried Zaha gave Palace the lead for the second time in the match (35), with the winger proving critical to Palace's chances of moving out of the relegation spots.

Oumar Niasse equalised with a cool finish from a Sigurdsson cross (45+1), the striker will now serve a two-match ban for simulation.


Poor Form

Everton have had an appalling season with Ronald Koeman's sacking doing little to arrest their poor form.

They have lost four, won one and drawn one of their last six matches, an appalling return for a side that has had so much investment.

The Toffees are in 16th place in the PL, with 12 points from their opening 12 fixtures.

They have yet to appoint a permanent manager, it is unlikely that Unsworth will get the position full time, especially after the 5-1 defeat in midweek.


Toffees Underdogs

Everton come into this match as underdogs, with their poor form informing the bookies.

This will be a tough match for Everton, with Southampton looking to produce a solid home performance.

The Toffees will be looking for their second successive win against Southampton.

Everton are 18/5 with Wayne Rooney at 15/2 to open the scoring.
